Our poll this month has incumbent US Senator Richard Burr holding onto a slim one point lead over potential Democratic challenger, Attorney General Roy Cooper 35% to 34%. 32% of voters say they are undecided at this point.
We also asked favorability ratings of each.
Burr has 33% favorable, 18% unfavorable for a net +15 favorability rating.
49.5% of voters either had no opinion or had never heard of Burr.
For Cooper, he has 28% favorable, 8% unfavorable for a net of +20.
64% of voters either had no opinion or had never heard of Cooper.
So basically, the status quo continues to rule this race. It's a toss up, and probably still will be so until one of the two starts advertising. But since neither candidate is well known, it's a pretty good barometer of the generic ballot tendencies of NC voters.
